Travel Advice and immunisations from 1st July 2018global air travel

From 1st July 2018 there will be a change in the provision of travel advice and immunisations at this surgery.

We will only be providing travel immunisations that are free on the NHS.  The NHS vaccines are:  Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and any combined vaccine that has one of these disease protections in it.

Our nurses will no longer be able to provide face to face or telephone travel advice.  If you are unsure about what immunisations you might need before travelling abroad, we suggest you consult a local travel advice centre or visit the Fit for Travel website or other links below.  Our receptionists can print off details of the immunisations you have already had if you need this information.  If the advice given is that you require NHS travel immunisations, then please make an appointment through Reception with one of our practice nurses to have these vaccinations. 

We do not provide courses of Hepatitis B for travel, Japanese Encephalitis, Meningitis ACWY, Rabies or Yellow Fever - you will need to go to a Travel Clinic as these are non NHS vaccines. 

If you need anti-malaria prophylaxis, you should obtain this from a pharmacy or Travel Clinic. 

Also, when going on holiday, remember to be aware of sun precautions and to use high factor sun creams to protect your skin.

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
